Sweethearts Bea Alonzo and Zanjoe Marudo
MANILA, Philippines - Actress Bea Alonzo had to cover the eyes of her boyfriend Zanjoe Marudo while watching the intimate scenes she did for her hit film "The Mistress" with actor John Lloyd Cruz.

In an interview on Wednesday, Alonzo said she watched the film for a second time with her real-life sweetheart on Tuesday night.

"Actually ayaw ko ngang panoorin na katabi siya. Sabi ko magpapa-manicure na lang ako habang nanonood sila, kaya lang kasama namin 'yung mga friends namin at sabi 'Ay naku hindi kami manonoo kung hindi ka manonood with us.' In other words nakapasok ako at kapag kissing scene namin ni Tito (Ronaldo Valdez) ay tinatakpan ko ang mata niya, pag-kissing scene namin ni John Lloyd tinatakpan ko ang mata niya kasi nakakahiya. Tapos may eksena pa na hindi ko naalala na naka-bra lang pala ako so sabi ko, 'Oh my God.' Nahihiya ako sa kanya pero nakakatuwa dahil very supportive," Alonzo said.

The actress said Marudo even stood up and cheered after watching the film.

"Pagkatapos ng pelikula pumalakpak, tumayo siya tapos sumigaw siya 'woo woo.' So lahat ng tao ay nagpalakpakan na din. Nakakahiya, para siyang naging block screening kasi nag-picture taking kami after," Alonzo said.

Produced by Star Cinema, “The Mistress” is now officially a blockbuster hit after the movie grossed P140 million in just a week. This was confirmed to by the movie’s director Olivia M. Lamasan on Wednesday.
